ADVANCED HIGHER MATHEMATICS UNIT 2 OUTCOME 1 JRT! pFERENT) ENTIATION VERSE TI sin“ x is the inverse function of sin. x x For example, we know that sin = = "x, tan“! x, ete. Similarly for cos ‘The derivative of sin x can be found as follows. Let y=sin x, where -1 - [since x=sin y] = cosy=vi-x' Hence (Note that y = sin“ x, where ~L 0.] A similar method can be used to find the derivatives of cos x, tan“ x, ete. sl FDI VE! f@) sin“! x cos x. - ile tan! x Example 1 y=sin“'3x) ‘This must be differentiated using the chain rule, y=tan"'( This must be differentiated using the chain rule. a : 2x, a& ey 2 “Tee mple y=cos™'(I- 2x) ‘This must be differentiated using the chain rule.
